In the 2008 survey, 31 percent of companies expect to experience a crime-related event, 26 percent expect a directors and officers liability incident and 19 percent said they anticipate an employment practices liability incident.

According to the survey, the average total cost, including judgments, settlements, fines and legal fees, of an employment practices liability-related event is $63,114.
